load in’s at 7, doors at 9
downbeat at 5 after 10
try to find some food around 8, then try to call home
leave a message when I try, and try again

I’m running out of reasons to keep getting back in the van
it’s funny how seasons change in spite of all our plans

so leave the light on for me

I’ve been thinking a lot about the darkness lately
because I don’t really know how to feel
are the curtains drawn on a dim, dark stage
where I bow my head and turn heel

and I’m not saying that I’m looking for treason
I feel guilty enough as it is
I just got to get out there on my own
but I don’t want to leave my friends

I’m running away before I run myself to death
please forgive me, and let me keep what I have left


from Summer, Slowly, released August 21, 2020
